Feed your feast with the Family Reunion BBQ Pit. Wine-country simplicity on wheels, the unpretentious Pit is basically an aluminum-lined crate about the size of two wine cases with a charcoal-fired roasting compartment large enough to hold a 100-pound pig. With the optional rotisserie kit (not pictured), you can also grill above while roasting below. 866-776-6272, napastyle.com
Chef’s Tip: When it comes to grilling, Chef Michael Chiarello votes for the original — wood fire. “Cook over the coals, not the newly burning logs; it adds a more delicate smoke flavor,” he advises.
